Chico Calif.—A California lawmaker is pushing legislation to stop child predators from working in schools.
Senator Mike Morrell from Rancho Cucamonga has written the Sexual Abuse Free Education or Safe Act.
It aims to ramp up the screening and hiring process for school employees.
It will ensure predators with a history of child sex abuse cannot stay in the system.
The bill proposes that records of allegations and investigations into misconduct would be disclosed to any future potential education employer.
Similar legislation passed in other states.
It will head to the State Education Committee next week.
